Nokia to cut jobs, says slow 5G progress not cause for layoffs.

Nokia’s next flagship smartphone “Nokia 9” is being speculated to host a penta-camera setup at the back, according to the leaked images surfacing in the media.

The images suggest that the rear camera system hosts five lenses, an LED flash and an infrared radiation (IR) focusing apparatus.

The roles of these five lenses would be telephoto, black white, colour and multi-lens pixel synthesis, The Next Web (TNW) reported late on Friday.

The smartphone, internally codenamed “TA-1094,” appears to sport the cameras in a flower-like pattern with one shooter in the centre, surrounded by the others along with an approval-seal from Zeiss.

Zeiss has been a long-standing camera partner for Nokia phones and the company has also reportedly “applied for a patent on a miniaturised camera zoom system – which looks similar to the one in the leaked photo,” the report added.

Previously, an image of the “Nokia 9” was shared by tech website Slashleaks which also showed a five-camera setup at the back of a blue-coloured smartphone.

Dual-rear cameras have been a trending fashion in recent smartphones until Chinese electronics giant Huawei launched its “P20 Pro” smartphone earlier this year, featuring three secondary cameras.

Nokia to cut jobs, says slow 5G progress not cause for layoffs.

Finnish telecommunication giant Nokia on Tuesday announced its plans to cut jobs, media reported.

Nokia gave 350 as a layoff target in Finland, and said the figures in France and Germany would be higher, but did not specify.

However, the company denied that the cuts would be related to the slower than expected launch of 5G technology, Xinhua news agency reported.

Instead, the aim is to make operations more efficient as the consolidation after the purchase of the French Alcatel-Lucent has been completed.

Tommi Uitto, director in charge of Nokia’s operations in Finland, said the changes are “necessary”. The cutbacks are part of 700-million-euro (about $798.7 million) savings announced in October 2018. Thereafter Marc Rouanne, one of the key directors, left the company.

In line with the government's Digital India programme, Nokia on Wednesday launched a "Smartpur" digital village project with the aim of developing 500 digitally integrated villages across the country in five years.

In France, the General Confederation of Labour (CGT) accused Nokia on Tuesday of attempting to improve profitability through shifting work to countries where labour costs are lower than in France.

Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat quoted the union as saying that Nokia has broken its 2016 promise to the then finance minister Emmanuel Macron that staff size at Alcatel-Lucent and Bell Labs would remain at 4,200 for two years.

CGT claimed that Nokia had also broken its pledge to employ 2,500 new staffers in research and development. Helsingin Sanomat economics writer Petri Sajari said the French unions could turn the Nokia cutbacks against President Macron.
